30th December, 2023

The feel-good comedy Arthur’s Whisky released on Sky Cinema on the 1st of January, starting off the new year with the wonderful trio of Diane Keaton, Patricia Hodge, and Lulu.

Arthur’s Whisky, directed by Stephen Cookson, with cinematography by David Mackie, and a screenplay by Alexis Zegerman, centres on a widow who discovers her recently deceased husband invented an elixir which makes the drinker look young again. Sharing it with her two friends, the three women paint the town red only to discover they are no longer equipped to be young in the modern world.

“Working with such an incredibly talented actress as academy award-winner Diane Keaton is a dream come true. She leads our brilliant ensemble cast featuring Patricia Hodge, David Harewood, Hayley Mills, Bill Paterson, Adil Ray, Boy George as well as the iconic Lulu.” - Stephen Cookson, Director

The pre mix was completed at OnSight, with the final mix at Pinewood Powell theatre.
